Welcome to the real Maldives. We provide alternative accommodation in the Maldives, alternative to the expensive resorts.  In the past is was not allowed for tourists to stay on local islands after sunset but when Mohamed Nasheed became the new president of the Maldives he looked for ways to develop the local communities and changed the law so it became possible for tourists to stay on local islands after sunset. This opened a lot of possibilities for local communities to develop guesthouses on local islands where you are much closer to the Maldivian life and culture than being on a resort. The main difference between a resort and a guesthouse is that a resort is a dedicated island and a guesthouse is anything that is not a resort, meaning it is located on a local island. Guesthouses vary from very low budget to resort like. On our webpage we offer you the more luxereus guesthouses.

The fantastic white sandy beaches and abundant green palmtrees are still yours to discover whilst staying in a Maldives guesthouse. Our selected guest house maldives offers the same activities as the resorts but for a much better price. Fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling and other watersports are available as is the visit of deserted islands. The guesthouses we selected are ranging from modern to traditional Maldivian.

Why would you choose for a guesthouse? You will have the chance to interact and experience local island life. Fishing, boat building and daily life, a totally different experience than being on a resort. You will be submerged in local islandlife with much more contact with local culture and local people, rather than being in an artificial environment with a lot of importworkers from Bangladesh, Nepal and India.

Discover The Real Maldives.  Stay on a local island, experience more contact with locals and local culture and still benifit from the beauty of the Maldives, sandy beaches, palmtress, coral reefs and abundant fish life on guest house maldives.

Not many people experience the Real Maldives, be one of the few and have an experience that will stay with you the rest of your life  – book your holiday with The Real Maldives.
